BTOC Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad Ride
So many of you have been inquiring about the Club riding the CVSR.
Well, it took the better part of 19 months but thanks to the unending perseverance of David Stachnik we have finally successfully booked a Club ride on the Cuyahoga Valley Railroad! Booking events for Cleveland has been a challenge to say the least due to the devastation and constantly changing picture that Covid brought. Without a close 2nd, though, the CVSR proved to be the toughest event for the Club to book.
Following 73 phone messages, 121 emails and 196 text messages going unanswered David decided it was time for a more direct (aggressive??) approach. Taking matters into his own hands (literally!!) David drove down to the CVSR main office in the Rockside Station to address the challenge head-on. Knocking on the station door he could clearly see the lights were on and there was at least one person in the office. He knocked once, then a second time and again a third time but his initial knocks on the door went unanswered. David, being David, refused to give up. Fortunately, authorities were not called in and finally, realizing David was not going away, the door opened.
As a result of these extraordinary efforts taken by David we now have the following NEW Cleveland Convention train Ride Event—The BTOC is Ridin’ the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad
